Phoenix is our wild child. She is constantly getting into things, no amount of baby proofing has held her back from wreaking havoc when she sees fit. She is also a tot who avoids sleep at any cost, usually to the detriment of our sanity!
When she outgrew her Owlet, I was so panicked. As SIDS parents, we needed that peace of mind back. So, the hunt was on for a video monitor we could use to at least TRY and keep her contained and in view during nap time, or when we need to get things done around the house.
I had a lot of qualifications that I needed a monitor to meet in order for my anxieties to be put at ease. One that allowed me to adjust view settings remotely, speak to her through a mic (because let’s face it, she requires a lot of we’ll just say “direction” when she thinks she’s alone), could track room temperature, had a long battery life, and great range for the size of our home.
Enter the Vava monitor! Ours came last month and you guys, I am so thrilled with this gadget! It has an amazing camera/screen quality as well as a zoom feature, even in night mode, so I’m never trying to squint and guess what I’m witnessing her do (or not do if we’re talking sleep).
We can also connect a second camera to place in the baby’s room once she’s arrived, so we’ll be able to monitor them both at the same time, which gives me so much relief as a soon to be mama of 2 under 2!
